wondering whether this big change in our government was going to be allowed to stand or whether it might be fixed by filibuster reform on day one of the senate, the news today is that it is apparently still day one of the new senate. it has been weeks now, democrats could still do it, but they have not yet. tick toc k.now it is time for "the last word" with lawrence o'donnell. >>> tonight, the president's revolve has forced the republican's hand on the debt ceiling. and later in this hour, wayne lapierre, the lobbyist who makes sure that mass murderers have the most weapons, will make a statement in response to the president's inaugural address, in which of course the president said absolutely nothing about gun ownership or the second amendment. >> our conversation will look to vote on a measure tomorrow. >> the short term raise for the debt ceiling. >> three-month extension of the debt ceiling. >> temporary extending for debt ceiling. >> what is the republican strategy here? >> three months is not good enough. >> they may not even vote for this. >> it is about time we come together, do
sequesters with cuts in other areas of government. we have shown how to protect defense spending by cutting spending in other areas. in our budget last year, we did take money out of defense. just not nearly as much as the president seems to want to. but we think the sequesters will happen because the democrats have opposed our efforts to replace those cuts with others and offered no alternatives. >> is this worth shutting the government down over? >> no one is talking about shutting the government down. >> well, it's a piece of the leverage that conservatives have. you didn't want to fight over the debt ceiling because you thought you can't do that, you have to pay the government's bills. do you think this fight over priority is worth shutting the government down? >> we're not interested in shutting the government down. what happens on march 1 is spending goes down automatically. march 27 is when the moment you're talking about, the continuing resolution expires. we are more than happy to keep spending at those levels going on into the future while we debate how to balance the budget, grow
and drawing down on the government's health benefit programs. what do you think about that? >> right. well, look this is a president that's completely wedded to the social welfare state of the 20th century, looking to advantage the agenda as far as into the 21st century as possible. this is a president who nationalized our health care system, and as bob noted, trying to take that agenda to energy policy and climate change. we've seen it already manufacturing the whole idea of green energy jobs, and in effect, trying to get rid of traditional energy. i think that we have to be very aware of what's happening here. i think there was a lot of fancy language used in the inaugural address, but the fact is that that doesn't cover up what's really going on here, which is to grow the progressive state. liz: let me back up listen, we've. covering this issue for awhile now with fox news and fox business, and here's the issue. will the u.s. start looking like a mature european country? is the u.s. coming towards you know, sort of an i
is when the boomers turn 67 when they start getting sick and drawing down on the government's health benefit programs. what do you think about that? >> right. well, look, this is a president that's completely wedded to the social welfare state of the 20th century, looking to advantage the agenda as far as into the 21st century as possible. this is a president who nationalized our health care system, and as bob noted, trying to take that agenda to energy policy and climate change. we've seen it already, manufacturing the whole idea of green energy jobs, and in effect, trying to get rid of traditional energy. i think that we have to be very aware of what's happening here. i think there was a lot of fancy language used in the inaugural address, but the fact is that that doesn't cover up what's really going on here, which is to grow the progressive state. liz: let me back up, listen, we've. covering this issue for awhile now with fox news and fox business, and here's the issue. will the u.s. start looking like a mature european country? is the u.s. coming towards, you know, sort of an id
. the details are in, senator diane fine sign is laying out the plan. and guess who gets a pass? government officials, we report, you decide. >> tucker: it could be a super bowl, why they want to go no booze at all during the biggest game of the year. >> right. >> clayton: and plus we showed you the half court hero, the incredible shot tackled by lebron. >> and half court hooker, he probably enjoyed the hug by lebron. >> and now tackled by taxes, and make $75,000, see if he gets to keep any of it. >> "fox & friends" begins right now. ♪ >> good morning, i hope you had a great weekend. >> clayton: yeah, ainsley earhart here, tucker carlson, ainsley fresh off the return to the gun range down there in texas. >> that was so fun. >> clayton: did you fire an a-47. >> no. >> were you nervous? >> i was down in katy, texas, offering free classes to teachers in the area. the class full of teachers and we interviewed why they were doing that and even though you're not allowed to take guns in flarms yet and hoping that does pass the state of texas. >> you looked great down there and we'll talk more a
for government. government does help a lot of people get places. we don't agree on that obviously, but -- >> dana: do you think that has s what he has been saying all along? if you compare the 2008 speech to this one, it's the same? >> bob: what i would say in this without sour grapes. in 2008 he tried to break across the gridlock and he didn't get anywhere so now he will go alone. >> eric: a lot of people on the right said he thinks he has a mandate because he was re-elected. his speech sounded like i have a mandate for the next term, the next four years. he talked about gay rights and climb change. weeping entitlement off the table. equal pay and immigration. those are things we'll hear in the next four years. it reads like a liberal agenda, top to bottom, i am going after it and getting it done. too bad, you lost, i won. looks like another victory lap. >> dana: we will get in sound bites later. the parade is still going on and the president and mrs. obama, the girls are in the viewing area. so we will continue to show you that while we get thoughts overall. when you look at the family, give me
orders. putting pressure on our state governments because there are areas, for example, fracking that are unregulated. deforestation. i think when we concentrate on just the congress national level we get frustrated and we get to the point where we say nothing is going to be done. if we look at cobbling together the different approaches, i think we can move forward. >> this idea that was brought up about the tragedies that lead us to say we must do something then the idea of using executive orders and cobbling things together. i wonder, part of what gave me a gut reaction to the oh now that hurricane sandy happened is whoa, these injustices have been so real for communities without resources, without power and often communities of color for so long. it feels a little bit like these lives and bodies matter and these other ones don't. >> exactly. what we see is that we see the climate impacts right now. we know that in alaska native americans are being relocated away from receding shorelines. we have seen what's happened in terms of civil disruption in new orleans. now we have sand
is all about. people who maintain an almost total skepticism about what government can accomplish for the good of this country. he talked about all the good things government does, whether it's education or it's a safety net or it's regulation when it has to be done in terms of big business. he launched all those good reasons and then he said, of course, there are people who retain a reasonable skepticism about the role of government in this country. that debate is going to continue. i thought that was an amazing effort. he's not going to win any support from the tea party. he might win though, the congressman may know better, he might be able to make some of the people who represent the suburbs who are not so far right realize this guy is not their enemy. he is somewhat to their left but he's probably as reasonable as anybody to their right in terms of politics these days. >> chris -- >> i think the battle today is between people that want government to function, want the debate to continue, and people that want to take their ball and go home and end government, shut it down, use
yesterday with secretary of state clinton was that america is dealing with nations whose own governments are in a shambles. and yet people like conservative chris stevens thought itthe bes way to make progress was to be there. you say we have to have relationships with these nations, but if those governments are in such a shambles, what's the alternative. how do we resolve that? >> i'm glad you raised those points. i know a lot of not only military personnel who are very brave but state department personnel who are very brave and yet when they take risks and when a benghazi consulate is overrun, we consider that fundamentally unacceptable. it is a terrible tragedy, but it is part of the risk in this world of being in places where you need to be when situations are not always stable. now, to your point about whether all governments can be worked with or cooperated with, of course, there are some governments that just aren't even trying or are in ka hoocah against us. but in a place like libya, i think the real issue is how do we get that young government get on its feet. it's generally we
. as the president should know by now. the federal government cannot provide for 320 million people. and the dangerous p danger is is that mr. obama's persistent attempts to do that to redistribute prosperity will bankrupt the nation, causing pain to everyone and making it impossible for poorly educated or kiss advantaged whom he sighted to make a living. the president's address was not an urgent call to reform entitlements, provide oversight on economic abuse or even stimulate the economy. none of that was on display. so it is quite clear that the president is willing to go down in history as a crusader for social justice no matter what happens to the economic fabric of the country. he does not want to cut government spending. he does not want to reform entitlements that are now directly threatening the american treasury. unless there is a radical change in the president's thinking, few problems will be solved over the next four years. we'll simply get more of the same. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. we begin our coverage of the inauguration by going down to wa

government. there are actually more federal regulation on manufacturing bb guns than there are real guns, so it really is, you know, francly ridiculous when you look at it like that, and i think what you brought up of guns making it into the illegal market, which is a big problem, we have to realize that 40% of all gun sales in this country every year go unchecked. i mean, that's a really easy way for a legitimate gun to fall into the hands of an illegitimate person, and we need to fix that problem, and the president's proposals will do just that. >> let me bring in our wonderful panel here in new york. hans, harry reid is bringing to theoretically going to bring this legislation forward to the floor of the senate and open amendment process, which a lot of people think is going to fundamentally water down some of the provisions because basically everybody gets to throw their 2 cents in. your read on that and your sort of optimism with regard to real reform. >> well, most of those serious reform efforts right now will have a ledges lafsh process, and we can game out how it's going to go. you'
. this is a poke in the eye of the justice department and a slap in the face to the u.s. government. the hacker group anonymous chose this u.s. federal sentencing website. they said it was a symbolic move by them. they believe that the u.s. department of justice is in clear violation of the eighth amendment, cruel and unusual punishment they're calling it. our washington bureau reached out to the fbi earlier today, miguel, and we obtained this statement from the fbi's assistant director of criminal cyber response and services branch. he had this. "we are aware as soon as it happened and we are handling it as a criminal investigation. we are always concerned when someone illegally accesses another person or government agency's network." the fbi saying they're well aware of this incident which happened a little after midnight. we've been following it all morning. >> what does anonymous hope to gain from this? it sounds like they'll only bring war down upon themselves and the government. >> we've tried to reach out to other hacker groups to get their take, but in the statement, i was poring over t
place to see often thanks to the u.s. government. one man says his home is in disrepair. his name is steve chat ty, a roofer. he says he and his three other family members are living in a rented basement and for the time being, that's the best they can do, and they are grateful for that. when they talk about tent city, they say without it they couldn't have survived. here's what he said. >> this place is basically the best thing that ever happened to us after the storm. they been here since day one. they help everybody in the community, from food, drinks, down to diapers, and you name it. people relied on this place after the hurricane. >> now there is concern this snowstorm expected to arrive in a few hours could be difficult to cope with, especially here with these very fragile tents, and late not forget, winter continues for many more months. >> shepard: yes, it does, david lee, thanks for the work. look at this video crews in northeast massachusetts. icicles forming on their go. they have to watch where they step because water turns to ice quickly. here's how the arctic air sw
be shooting ourself in the foot. they tried closing down the government back in the 1990s. that didn't didn't work too well. they're focusing on what is called the sequester, which are across the board spending reductions. that's where i think they will make their stand. we'll have a good robust debate about the level of spending we'll have in this country. the cuts in the sequester are too much for the pentagon for republicans to like. that will be focus rather than having republicans blamed for defaulting on the debt or shutting down the government. that was a shrewd move on their part. melissa: everybody talks about we need to get entitlement spending uncontrol. we need to balance our books, seems like it but also seems like no one is really serious about doing that, republicans included. you're an inside guy who got frustrated with the process and left. do you think any politicians in washington are sincerely committed to reforming entitlements, even the republicans? >> well, there are a few. i mean people who put the long-term best interests of the country ahead of short term political
it calls for how they will pay for the government going forward. after march 27th the budget issues are high on the priority list. there are challenges as he faces the republican house. he heard from paul ryan and dick durbin and their opinions on what the president needs to do going forward. >> the green line is historic tax rates, how much we raise in taxes and the blue is how many increases president obama is calling for. the red is where spending is going. spending is the problem, revenues are not the problem. if you keep chasing them they will hurt economic growth, shut down the economy and won't get the budget balanced. >> what i heard the president say was programs like social security and medicare and med aid critically important for our future and we need to have a bipartisan commitment to make them work. bob and i have been in a lot of meetings talking about deficit reduction. we need reform in the programs that mean they will live on to serve future generations. that's the message i took from the president. >> referring to bob corker to the left of the screen. the preside
at the state level that we can look to, the federal government needs to look at and see, those are things that actually could prevent some of this gun violence. let's make the crimes harsher, let's federalize some of the penalties for using a gun to commit a crime. >> all right. i just -- i find it ironic that people who want spending cuts are proposing more spending. that's a separate issue. john, let me ask you about this that i referenced in texas. they are now saying there's a law being considered, a bill in texas, where if you're already allowed to carry concealed hand gun, you would now be allowed to carry that concealed hand gun on a college or university campus. is that bill going to change because of what happened today or is it just going to go full ahead? >> let's hope so. if there's some common sense and decency on the part of the legislators to respond to changing facts on the ground. look, this shooting is a case study for why more guns on college campuses are a terrible idea. i mean, it doesn't pass the common sense test. anyone who has been to college, it's hard to imagine
language of government. >> i would build a fence on every inch of the southern border. >> if you say that we should not educate children, i don't think you have a heart. >> well, i support the arizona law. >> what you need to do is attack their benefits. >> it would have electrified barbed wire at the top. >> we need to end the practice of anchor babies in the united states. >> and yes, mr. president, it would have alligators in it. >> we are losing! >> we are losing. >>> we begin with all eyes on the border, and what could be the first big legislative action and fight of 2013. just a week after the president's second term inauguration, a consensus over immigration has developed at an unusual speed. the president is due to roll out his own immigration overhaul tuesday in las vegas, but this afternoon a bipartisan group of senators unveiled the framework for a major reform bill, including a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants. >> we still have a long way to go, but this bipartisan blueprint is a major break through. >> we cannot continue as a nation with 11 millio
really helps explain, at least in part, why the u.s. government is so reticent to help syrians. >> yes, right. >> because, as was pointed out during kerry's confirmation hearing for secretary of state this past week, you know, when john mccain said are we or are we not the friends of the syrian people? it was senator kerry who pointed out that, you know, this is a country not unlike many in the region that has so many dimensions to it, not the least of which is what happens, you know, once the various sectarian factions, sunni, shia, drews, et cetera, how do they play out? what happens with the kurds? where are the arms going? where is the money going? and in a way -- sorry, just to finish up the point. in a way this is the obliqueness phyllis is talking about. nobody is going to say look at what has happened with libya. they're not going to say that, obviously. but this is part of the lesson learning mission that soon-to-be secretary kerry is on and needs to be on in order to figure out how do we not be part of the problem anymore. >> that's absolutely right. it's libya we did interve
every private personal firearm transaction right under the thumb of the federal government. he wants to keep all of those names in a massive federal registry. there's only two reasons for a federal list on gun owners, to either tax them or take them. >> cenk: that's absolute nonsense. what we're trying to figure out is who's felons, who's mentally ill. what's really interesting is that has not always been the nra position. there was an interesting article where they explained they switched positions earlier: >> cenk: it's interesting the parallel between a lot of the gun owners today and a lot of the owners back them. back then, the n.r.a. wasn't in favor of that. all of a sudden they started talking about gun control. the black panthers said: >> cenk: when the black panthers were saying that, the n.r.a. was not buying it. let me bring in the man who wrote the book on this, called "gunfight, the battle over the right to bear articles in america." talk to me about the context of the second amendment when passed. >> it was added to the constitution right when the framers were trying to
of its effect, not only on that four but other eight governing agencies as well. >> well, the game is not over. this is not the end of the line. it will be appealed and likely go on to higher courts. constitutionally conservatives will argue that they're restricting the power of the president, the same way if the republican does it, he'll be restricted either. this will go on to another court and they could see it very differently. >> cenk: you know, michael i'm really worried about the consequences if they do not see it differently. >> i read the ruling today and it's doll and i'm droll and i'm not good at reading legal documents but it depends on when they go to recess or when it's in adjournment, and it's wonky stuff. >> cenk: please tell me more. >> here we go, let's say they get everything they want. the supreme court passes all the judicial muster it needs to, they could conceivably go in and undo all the work that has been done. >> cenk: the court would go back and say everything you did to try to protect us from the banks is now invalid. so the banks on wall street have got
us from washington with more. rich. >> government watchdog says the treasury was too soft on executive pay. special inspector general for tarp bailout aig, general motors and allied financial. despite the previous warning and recommendation the treasury lacked bust criteria and policies and procedures to insure treasury guidelines to curb excessive pay were met. treasury made no meaningful reform to the process. the treasury approved pay packages of $5 million for top executives at those companies. 30% made 3 and 4.9 million. more than half made three million. every top executive except for one made at least a million. in response to the report, treasury says, taken together the original seven companies under osm jurisdiction have returned the $352 billion in total assistance provided plus additional positive return to date of more than 6 billion. we anticipate significant additional repayments which would increase the overall positive return. treasury said it cut pay significantly at other companies that received extraordinary taxpayer funding. back to you. david: all rig
on if you want to die. would i wake up feeling increasingly bad treatment was paid for by the government. the problem won't be solved unless you let them hurry up and die. >> he's apologized, and japan has the most extreme demographics in human history. and almost a quarter of japan's people are 60 and over, that aging population, a serious drain on the company's economy. frequent "varney & company" guest summed up japan's predicament in an interesting way, listen to this. >> you can see anecdotally they sell more adult diaper products than infant. stuart: is that true? >> yes, it is. stuart: wow, indeed. that's the dire situation in japan. contrast that with the united states. our proportion of old people far, far lower than japan, and lower than europe, too. a big part of that is because of immigran immigrants. now this, the former head of the head of the city teacher's union, that was years ago, she is, however, randy weingarten, now the head of the federation of teachers which is a part of the afl-cio and joins us in the next hour, and topic number one, the six-figure payout. we foll

to maintain his relevancy and have a shelf life on this party, that he needs to join the government. he needs to exercise the kind of power and influence that is required to service and fulfill his agenda. >> he has a lot of different ideas to benjamin netanyahu, doesn't he? >> he does, clearly, but remember, benjamin netanyahu is the master of the israeli economy which has done quite well although they're now facing serious austerity concerns and are going to have to impose some of them on the public. on the peace issue, i think there's actually quite a lot of consensus between lapid and netanyahu, both support, nominally, a two state situation. like netanyahu and his father, tommy lapid, he's against the division of jerusalem. so i wouldn't hold my breath that whatever israeli government that emerges is going to be able to take major decisions on the israel yanl palestinian decisions because it's going to be a broader government. it's on the rule of the orthodox, national service, socioeconomic issues and perhaps on iran. >> a lot of people think that the center in israel, it's really much

, but if we don't fully understand what's happening and how it's adjusting, how can the government do anything about it? >> look, that's a fair point. i'm not saying throwing money at the problem is the answer. >> i don't know, it's one thing. >> that's the larger point though, right? we should have a sense of humility, but we should take action to solve problems and if we don't, if one political says it shouldn't be talked about, it looks like you're coddling flat earth society folks. >> all right. thanks. >> the facts are -- >> quick wrap. >> all right. i was going to let him get another five seconds, but he was quiet when i asked. next, john boehner says he's convinced the president plans to annihilate the gop. and apple's shares tanking after hours. who's to blame? could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking.

-out after 11 years of doing this, the united states government still does not know how to do it properly. speaking to katrina's point, there was something that president obama said when he was engaging in the primary debates with hillary clinton when he said he didn't want to just end the war in iraq, but he wanted to end the mindset that got the united states into iraq, and a fair reading of the record is not a fight he has pressed. under his presidency, he has proliferated aerial warfare into yemen, and so many other place, and if you would imagine a plane at 30,000 feet that took off during the bush edadministratio as global warfare and perhaps rack up the global withdrawal from iraq and perhaps afghanistan differently, and president obama has taken it down to 10,000 feet, be but it is flying parallel to the earth. >> well, part of what i am wondering is that we started the day by saying that this president is going to leave a legacy of having shifted the demographics of the military, and he is going to look culturally and demographically quite differently, but also, will he leave beh
